Forum: software Subject: Is just the download free or the program as well?

You might want to be more specific, since I've had tons of "free downloads" turn out to be shareware. Nothing against shareware in and of itself, as long as it's stated upfront that that's what a person is downloading. It's the weaselly marketing practice of trying to disguise shareware as free by using the "free download" gimmick (in the hopes that some of the people who download it will be conned into coughing up the money) that I find reprehensible.
